Value and Unmatched Reliability

200-Watt output to meet or exceed SAE J1849 and Class A requirements for sound when paired with a
Federal Signal high-power speaker.
A Wide Range of Features
A wide range of features comes standard with any PA300 police siren. Included are 5 basic siren tones,
TAP II (horn-ring transfer), PA, radio rebroadcast and air horn sound with siren override. TAP II allows for effective
intersection traffic clearing capability without having to remove your hands from the steering wheel or your eyes
from the road. There is also a Press-and-Hold function, depressing and holding the horn ring will produce an
alternate sound for as long as the operator keeps the horn ring circuit depressed.
Noise-canceling Microphone
The PA volume level can be controlled with a rotary GAIN switch located on the units backlit front panel, and
radio rebroadcast volume is adjustable via an easily accessible rotary pot. The PA300 siren also includes a permanent
noise-canceling microphone that produces high-quality voice reproduction without feedback squeal, and the
push-to-talk switch will override any siren tone for instant PA use.
Electrical System
The totally enclosed, fully featured siren operates from any 12- or 24-volt negative ground vehicle electrical system.
The PA300 can be powered directly by the cars battery or through secondary power distribution centers. No matter
how power is delivered, the PA300 siren is protected against most failure modes, including reversed polarity, by a
fuse that is readily available and can be replaced without tools.
Compact Size
PA300 siren packages are built small and compact and each unit comes supplied with its own U shaped
mount bracket. There are no protruding components to interfere with mounting arrangements and all electrical
connections are easy plug-and-play type which are located on the rear of the sirens housing.
Mounting Options
An optional stainless steel bezel is available for flush mounting and a wide variety
of switch controls that flush mount to the PA300 series siren are also available.
